Cool and Creamy Cucumber Dip

When we first married, Lou told me her Mom made little cucumber sandwiches for parties. I’m a south Mississippi hillbilly by birth so I don’t know much about fancy little cucumber sandwiches. She described how her Mom made them, and soon after, I prepared them for a Friday Night Porch Party. Lou was right. They were delicious. This is my take on those little sandwiches in a dip form. The dip tastes so fresh and exactly like those little sandwiches when served with toast points prepared from white bread.

Cucumber Dip


1 English cucumber, peeled and thinly sliced

1/2 cup white vinegar

1/2 cup water

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 block of cream cheese, softened

1/2 cup mayonnaise

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper


As early as possible, preferably the day before, combine the cucumber with the vinegar, water, sugar and salt in a mason jar to marinate in the refrigerator. When you are ready to make the dip, remove the cucumbers from the marinade and chop. Save a little of the marinade to add to the dip. Combine the cream cheese, mayonnaise, cayenne and about a tablespoon of the marinade. Fold in the chopped cucumbers. Refrigerate. Serve with any plain cracker like a Wheat Thin.
